Start your week right by picking up some good habits from the most creative minds of this century!

What better way to start a Monday on a good note than to find out the top 6 tips conducive to greater creativity? Listen closely and follow this link to find out more...

After reading Mason Currey's Daily Rituals: How Great Minds Make Time, Find Inspiration, and Get to Work: How Artists Work, Guardian columnist Oliver Burkeman decided to try out a few for himself to see if they would help get his creative juices flowing. You might be happy (or sad...) to hear that VS Pritchett's lunch-time martinis are definitely not the way to go and nor did it particularly help to spend the morning in the buff like Benjamin Franklin...

Burkeman did however manage to narrow down 6 top tips that he recommends to all creatives:

1) Be a morning person
2) Don't give up the day job
3) Take lots of walks
4) Stick to a schedule
5) Practice strategic substance abuse (Caffeine!!!)
6) Learn to work anywhere
